Israel’s police have said citizens shouldn’t panic but instead remain alert and report any suspicious activities or people to the proper authorities.

Wednesday’s first explosion occurred at a bus stop at Givat Sha’ul Junction, near the city’s western entrance, and the second at Ramot Junction in northern Jerusalem. Police suspect both bombs were detonated remotely, filled with nails and bolts to cause as much damage as possible.

The 16-year-old student killed was identified as Aryeh Shechopek, a Canadian-Israeli. He was a resident of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Nof and a student at a small yeshiva (Jewish educational institution) in Moshav Beit Meir.

No specific group has claimed responsibility for the attacks. However, there was praise from both Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad following the attack.
